Barnacle Ben: The Scaled Warrior.
This is a short campaign to bring the Scaled Warrior into production. As you can see, he has already been taken to the master casting stage but, as he was not unlocked in a previous Outlanders campaign has not yet made it to a production mould.
He should prove suitable for all kinds of tabletop gaming or simply to paint for the fun of it.
The Scaled Warrior is a chunky lad, standing approximately 40mm tall from the soles of his feet to the top of his head. He will be cast in white metal and stands on an integral rocky base so that he can be fitted on to any kind of base that you desire to match your existing collection.
He has been mounted on a 25mm slotta-base to give an indication of his actual size.
Barnacle Ben is well known among the people who inhabit the settlements on the fringes of the great Southern Desert of Outland. Not much is known of his origins, whether he is an alien, a mutant or the subject of a (failed?) experiment. If he knows, he is not telling.
What is known is his reputation as an extremely tough and hardened warrior for hire. Standing a colossal eight feet tall and armed with his huge heavy-calibre machine gun and great strength, his services are in high demand as either a personal bodyguard or bounty hunter. He also has a solid reputation for honouring his contracts, none can claim that he has ever broken his word.
His 'barnacled' skin is tougher than any leather and is akin to armour. Punching Ben is not advised, unless you like scooping food with your hands. And that is if he does not hit you back!
And a wonderful painted version by Asslessman, who has done a cracking job on him to fit in with his own mutant gang....
So, if you want to hire Barnacle Ben, you know what to do.....
If you want to give Ben some company on his journey to you.
There are several options from earlier releases from the OUTLANDERS range available, from Character Packs right up to larger Warband Sets.
There are also Pledge Levels available for those that wish to access the 'Add-On' items only. These are region specific, just choose the one applicable to you.
Any of the Character Packs below may be added to your pledge at a cost of £6 each.
Any of the Warband Sets below may be added to your pledge at a cost of £30 for each band.
Do you want everything?
If you do, there are a limited number of 'Everything' Pledges available, which include a discount of over 10%.
All of the above figures either have slotta base tabs, that will fit most types of plastic bases, or are flat bottomed so that they can be fitted to any type of base that you choose.
Bases are NOT supplied.
There are several reasons for this.
Firstly, whichever type that I chose may not necessarily be compatible with those of any given Backer.
Secondly, I would have to increase the cost of all Pledges to cover this.
Thirdly, and most importantly, the space that they occupy could take parcels from the Large Letter category, which 95% of all parcels so far have fit into, up to a Small Parcel and thus increase the postage further. This can be quite a significant increase when sending overseas.
Bearing all these factors in mind I have decided it makes more sense not to add them.
Risks and challenges
There are no significant risks to this project.
The Scaled Warrior has already been sculpted and a master mould and castings made.
It is really just a matter of getting a production mould made for Barnacle Ben as the other Add-On options are already in production and it is simply a matter of getting those cast up.
The only thing that could delay the process at all would be too many Backers, but that would be a pleasant problem to have and there has already been extra time factored into the plan to allow for this.
I fully expect everyone to get their shiny new goodies long before the delivery date stated.
